New Jersey Court of Appeals Says Jury May Hear Claim Woman Did Not Receive Enough Information From Physician When Advising Abortion

A New Jersey Court of Appeals ruled Friday that a jury may hear a woman’s claim that her physician failed to provide enough information when advising her to end the pregnancy.  Anti-abortion proponents claim the decision will allow a jury to decide when life begins.  Other experts claim the ruling will have little impact on state laws on abortion.  Source.  Tom Hester, Star-Ledger, The Star Ledger, nj.com.
